I don’t know about you, but in addition to friends, family and the attractions at travel destinations I find that a good percentage of my vacation/holiday photos focus on the clouds. They’re ever changing, very moody, and add great depth to the sky.

Why searching on-line for cloud related stuff, I discovered (and joined)…

The Cloud Appreciation Society

Here are my official documents. Pretty cool!

Among other things the site provides, folks can upload and share their favorite dramatic cloud photos.

Here are a few I found on the site. Nature can be pretty inspiring!

Types of Clouds – If you don’t know a stratus from a cirrus, the BBC Weather Centre has text descriptions as well as an illustration of different cloud formations.

Book On Clouds – “The Cloudspotter’s Guide” released in May by Gavin Pretor-Pinney (founder of the Cloud Appreciation Society) mixes humor and science to both inform and entertain.

Cloud Quotes – among the other quotes featured on the Brainy Quote site these are cloud specific.
